Welcome to the American Black Hereford National Sale at the American Royal!
This is our annual National sale in Kansas City, and our breeders have upped their game with a great sale offering packed with outstanding Black Hereford genetics. The American Black Hereford Association (ABHA) and our membership appreciate your interest in the 2023 A Royal Affair National Sale! Once again, the consignors have worked hard to bring you an elite group of cattle, and frozen genetic lots.
With the current cattle markets and the need for efficiency and the ability to maximize profit, we have seen a rapidly growing interest for Black Hereford genetics. Our breeders have committed to bringing their best, and it is apparent in this sale offering. The cattle industry is in need of maximizing efficiency in the production of a pound of beef. BLACK HEREFORD is one of the leaders in this and can deliver it in a docile, calving friendly, black-hided, modern designed package. Our cattle can improve your bottom line by injecting feed efficiency, carcass yields, quality, and eye appeal.
As you flip though the catalog, you can take stock in the fact that these breeders are offering cattle they have put emphasis on through their selection of breeding decisions - from how cow families will align to how genetic merit will position to make them predictable and built with longevity. The cattle selling in October in Kansas City come backed by breeders and an Association Staff that want to see them work and make your operation profitable.
It is with great excitement that the National Sale committee, ABHA Board and ABHA Staff invite you to this year’s A Royal Affair National Sale, hosted in conjunction with the American Royal on Saturday, October 7, 2023, at 1 p.m. Cattle will be on display beginning at 11:30 a.m. prior to the sale.

JN BALDEE 1107
Here is an opportunity to flush the 2019 National Champion HX Black Hereford female who has been a favorite of many who have seen her. It was hard to find a more powerful and exquisitely designed female that could get around her when she was being campaigned on the show road and that is still true now that she is in production. Young females of this type of design and stature don’t come along often!
35Z has been quite the producer in the last decade and her daughters have produced excellent progeny and high sellers as well. Two of her top daughters are lots 15A and 15B and will go on to write their own history. Not every day do you come across a producer like 35Z that still looks youthful, and still has several years left of production!
